While battling homelessness has been SEARCH’s focus for more than 30 years, our community’s challenges today amplify the significant race, economic, and health divides most of our clients face every day of their lives.  We provide services that move our clients from the streets and keep them stably housed, fed, and healthy. More importantly, we offer them community, dignity, opportunity, choice, and hope. These extraordinary times call for extraordinary acts to build our community’s health and humanity. We hope you will join us as we gather to celebrate and support our mission at SEARCH’s Picnic with a Purpose.
